MSNBC is rebranding its daytime newscasts. The lineup hasn’t changed, but instead of falling under the “MSNBC Live” banner, shows are titled the name of the anchor, followed by “Reports,” starting at 9a with “Stephanie Ruhle Reports.” Chuck Todd’s show will remain “MTP Daily.” The move is aimed at distinguishing daytime news shows from analysis shows in the later afternoon and evenings.

Large sell-offs on Friday of ViacomCBS and Discovery stock, among other companies, were explained Monday by the forced liquidation of positions last week by Archegos Capital Management, when the hedge fund failed to meet massive margin commitments. Investments from the now bankrupt Archegos led to a major hike in the price of the media companies’ stocks over the last few months, but prices fell back to earth when analysts eventually downgraded the stocks; the sell-offs likely exacerbated the declines. ViacomCBS stock, which hit $100.34 on March 22, closed yesterday at $45.01, while Discovery, which had risen to $77.27 on March 19, closed at $41.23.
